Ava Air (JSR, Fort de France) has added a maiden Jetstream 32 to its fleet as it prepares to launch regional Caribbean operations later this year.

Skyworld Aviation reports the start-up acquired msn 841, formerly SE-LHI with Sweden's Direktflyg (Borlänge/Falun), late last year. The twinprop subsequently arrived in Martinique in December and has since been added to the French register as F-OTEI.

The aircraft will be deployed on flights to Guadeloupe and St Martin.
